Thanks for giving... this Saturday morning.

Your home will be visited this coming Saturday morning, November 22, by Hugo's Boys Scout Troop 151, Cub Scout Pack 151 or one of Hugo's many Girl Scout Troops to collect non-perishable food and personal item donations.

You'll likely see familiar faces as there are many Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts (and volunteer leaders) living right here in our Victor Gardens neighborhood.

If you're not planning to be home Saturday morning, you can leave donations on your front porch for the Scouts to collect. You can also leave any donations from now through Saturday on Viker's front porch at 4545 Garden Way N.

Over the last few years "Scouting for Food / Feeding the Need" has become increasingly successful. They've collected thousands of pounds of donations that are distributed to Hugo families. The Scouts hope that you'll support their efforts again as you have so generously in the past.

Thanks again and see you Saturday morning!

Hugo's Good Neighbors Food shelf currently needs:

From past experience, we know that a few of you shop specifically for this annual event. (That's amazing!) We appreciate any donations, but there are a few categories the Hugo Good Neighbors Food Shelf needs now: Diapers, baby care items, personal care items, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo/conditioner, paper towels, toilet paper, bar soap, and laundry detergent.

Nonperishable items are always welcome including hearty soups, canned pasta, canned meat (tuna and chicken), canned fruit, mac & cheese, spaghetti sauce, pasta, coffee, pancake mix and syrup, beef stew, boxed potatoes, flour, sugar and baking supplies.
